Merry Christmas! My Favorite Christmas Teas, Christina Rosetti Poem

I just want to wish you all, dear friends, the most wonderful Christmas ever! May you be surrounded by all that is beautiful and gracious, as the source of Grace, Jesus is the center.  I brought this post, partially finished, with me out of town to Victoria, BC because of the no-Internet problem most of the week, but find I can't scroll down to tell you about the teas...but I am sure you can see what they are. Murchies Christmas tea was again my favorite, but the Downton tea...very cranberry juicy...and the Republic of tea...liked spiced cider...were delicious. The Harney White Christmas smelled like almonds, but tasted like chocolate. All warming joyful hearted teas!  Merry Christmas!

And here are my choices of my favorite Christmas teas this year...

I came across one of my favorite Christmas poems which has also been made into a Christmas Carol with several variations. The poem was written by Christina Rosetti during the Victorian era and I still love it!

What can I give Him,

Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb,
If I were a wise man
I would do my part,
Yet what I can I give Him,
Give my heart.

In the Bleak Midwinter
 gifChristina Rossetti (1872)


  1. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas weekend at Victoria, Ruth! I've also enjoyed the teas that you shared except for the Republic of Teas which are not readily available north of the border. My favourite all-time Christmas tea is Candy Cane Lane!

  2. Im so enjoyed reading what your favorite teas are, Ruth. I think I told you that I bought some Harney and Sons Holiday Tea, but now I want to try the Murchies Christmas Tea and the Harney White Christmas Tea.


Thanks for visiting and we love to hear from you! We read every comment. If my husband's health permits, I love to visit andreply. Have a wonderful day and a cuppa tea always at hand! :)
